Weddings are always a culmination of amazing things from start to finish. But what do you get when you combine a gorgeous marble hall, a reception filled to the brim with historic Packard cars, a wonderful family, and a rad couple? You get Taylor + Kirsten’s fantastic wedding day, that’s what!
Taylor + Kirsten are two wonderful souls. They’re kind, generous, and you can tell just how much they are loved by so, so many by just how joyful their wedding was. From the moment Beth and I arrived, you could sense the excitement from Kirsten’s mother and sisters, and the true joy for Taylor from his groomsmen was impossible not to feel. Laughter abounded, as well as a never ending supply of incredible spots to photograph their story with, which was an absolute blast. America’s Packard Museum was a new wedding venue in Dayton for me as a photographer, and it was fantastic to get to create in a new space with such a unique feel!
There were so many beautiful pieces to this wedding, but one part for me personally was that during the wedding at Dayton’s Memorial Hall, Kirsten’s mother sang. It’s not uncommon for loved ones to sing at weddings during the ceremony, but this was completely different. Kirsten’s mother has an unbelievably beautiful voice, and it was an honor to be able to capture such sheer talent for their family!
But, not to be forgotten, they had some of the most heartfelt speeches from their wedding party I have heard. Again, it became evident how much they are loved, and it’s always fun to hear the back stories from friends and family that embarrass the couple in new and fresh ways!
Taylor and Kirsten, thank you so much for allowing Beth and me to capture your wedding day. It was truly an honor to be your photographer, and I wish you all the best in the world as you embark on your newest adventure of life together as Mr. & Mrs.!
And finally, a huge, huge thank you to Beth Winstead of Winstead Photo for coming up and second shooting with me for this wedding. It was truly an honor to get to create alongside you!
